Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6904) A baby step towards inter-version RPC communications
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2011 00:05:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6904?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12979860#action_12979860
] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-6904:
--------------------------------------

If the client must provide an interface name that the server then uses to identify the set
of methods to fingerprint then I don't see that adding the interface name to the fingerprint
function would change semantics.  Or am I missing something?  It might even simplify some
things, e.g., if the client's protocol fingerprint incorporated its protocol interface name
then the fingerprint alone might be used to lookup cached server fingerprints.  Are there
protocols where we don't intend to use service authentication, where clients don't provide
the protocol interface name?  If so, that might argue against using the interface name in
the protocol fingerprint.  Are there other reasons?

In the latest patch, we might better use ConcurrentHashMap for the fingerprint cache.  Also,
we should probably mark the cache 'static final' and name it something like FINGERPRINT_CACHE.

> Currently RPC communications in Hadoop is very strict. If a client has a different version
from that of the server, a VersionMismatched exception is thrown and the client can not connect
to the server. This force us to update both client and server all at once if a RPC protocol
is changed. But sometime different versions do not mean the client & server are not compatible.
It would be nice if we could relax this restriction and allows us to support inter-version
communications.
> My idea is that DfsClient catches VersionMismatched exception when it connects to NameNode.
It then checks if the client & the server is compatible. If yes, it sets the NameNode
version in the dfs client and allows the client to continue talking to NameNode. Otherwise,
rethrow the VersionMismatch exception.
